Porch down and trench complete
Building Inspector been again to give the go-ahead for the pouring of the concrete strip foundations. Everything ready to go. Concrete ordered for tomorrow, will need about 1.80 cubic meters. Have located and leveled wooden stakes into the bottom of the trench to act as a guide for leveling the concrete when poured. Concrete thickness will be 200mm, a little more than i wanted but at least it will be strong. Will need to order engineering and concrete bricks, concrete blocks and trench blocks for building up of foundations to ground level. Inspector says cavity needs to run 225mm below proposed ground level.
